Installation

Dependency Managers

CocoaPods

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. You can install it with the following command:

$ gem install cocoapods

To integrate LeakDetector into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git'
platform :ios, '8.0'
use_frameworks!

pod 'LeakDetector', '~> 1.0.0'

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install
Carthage

Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that automates the process of adding frameworks to your Cocoa application.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate LeakDetector into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "duyquang91/LeakDetector" ~> 1.0.0
Swift Package Manager

To use LeakDetector as a Swift Package Manager package just add the following in your Package.swift file.

// swift-tools-version:4.2

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "HelloLeakDetector",
    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "https://github.com/duyquang91/LeakDetector.git", .upToNextMajor(from: "1.0.0"))
    ],
    targets: [
        .target(name: "HelloLeakDetector", dependencies: ["LeakDetector"])
    ]
)

Manually

If you prefer not to use either of the aforementioned dependency managers, you can integrate LeakDetector into your project manually.

Git Submodules

  • Open up Terminal, cd into your top-level project directory, and run the following command "if" your project is not initialized as a git repository:
$ git init
  • Add LeakDetector as a git submodule by running the following command:
$ git submodule add https://github.com/duyquang91/LeakDetector.git
$ git submodule update --init --recursive
  • Open the new LeakDetector folder, and drag the LeakDetector.xcodeproj into the Project Navigator of your application's Xcode project.

    It should appear nested underneath your application's blue project icon. Whether it is above or below all the other Xcode groups does not matter.

  • Select the LeakDetector.xcodeproj in the Project Navigator and verify the deployment target matches that of your application target.

  • Next, select your application project in the Project Navigator (blue project icon) to navigate to the target configuration window and select the application target under the "Targets" heading in the sidebar.

  • In the tab bar at the top of that window, open the "General" panel.

  • Click on the + button under the "Embedded Binaries" section.

  • You will see two different LeakDetector.xcodeproj folders each with two different versions of the LeakDetector.framework nested inside a Products folder.

    It does not matter which Products folder you choose from.

  • Select the LeakDetector.framework.

  • And that's it!

The LeakDetector.framework is automagically added as a target dependency, linked framework and embedded framework in a copy files build phase which is all you need to build on the simulator and a device.

Embedded Binaries

  • Download the latest release from https://github.com/duyquang91/LeakDetector/releases
  • Next, select your application project in the Project Navigator (blue project icon) to navigate to the target configuration window and select the application target under the "Targets" heading in the sidebar.
  • In the tab bar at the top of that window, open the "General" panel.
  • Click on the + button under the "Embedded Binaries" section.
  • Add the downloaded LeakDetector.framework.
  • And that's it!

Usage

Let's imagine we have a class which can be leaked:

class LeakableObject {
  var otherObject: LeakableObject!

  init(otherObject: LeakableObject? = nil) {
    self.otherObject = otherObject
  }
}

Two LeakableObject instances bellow will be leaked:

let object1 = LeakableObject()
let object2 = LeakableObject(otherObject: object1)
object1.otherObject = object2

Using LeakDetector can detect the leak in Runtime:

import LeakDetector

// When we expecting the deallocation of 2 instances of LeakableObject, such as view controller keep these instances is dismissed
LeakDetector.instance.expectDeallocate(object: object1)
LeakDetector.instance.expectDeallocate(object: object2)

An assert failure will be throw and App will be crash to let developers be aware & fix the leak. By default, LeakDetector is disable, we should enable on Debug mode only:

func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
  #if Debug
      LeakDetector.isEnabled = true
  #endif
  return true
}

You can open the Demo project to explore more use cases of using LeakDetector

Inspiration

We can talk about the idea via this article on medium & the code implementation is referred from open-source Uber RIBs architecture.
